II. Federal Reserve Is “Private” Institution Run By “Thieves” Is A Dangerous Lie
Edwin Sumcad
    

      Peddling a dangerous lie that induces emotional freaks to kill or create havoc and destroy America is actually a terror attack worse than 911.

The first Europeans were cannibals with a taste for kids
06-24-2009  •  Daily Telegraph 

The claim has come after bones of the ancestors of Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens who first settled in Europe around 800,000 years ago were unearthed in the Atapuerca caves in northern Spain.

A study of the prehistoric remains has revealed that human flesh formed part of the diet of early man and children and adolescents in particular were regularly killed and eaten.

Ron Paul: The World's Most Popular U.S. Congressman (VIDEO)
06-24-2009  •  Huffington Post 

Months after his long-shot bid for the Republican presidential nomination ended, Rep. Ron Paul has become a hot ticket on the international stage. Unlikely as it may seem, Paul, a Texas Republican, is the most popular member of Congress outside the United States, if foreign television appearances are any indication.

Paul expected his international influence to diminish after the quixotic presidential campaign. In fact, it's gone the other way.

"It's actually building," he told the Huffington Post. "It really truly baffles me. I see myself as somebody who's been saying the same thing for about 30 years and not too many people paying any attention."

Opinion: Torture eats away at the soul of this nation
06-24-2009  •  By Diana Gibson and Ray McGovern 

Anniversaries can be important. This Friday marks the 22nd anniversary of the U.N. Convention against Torture, ratified and signed under President Reagan. Last Friday marked the 150th day of the presidency of Barack Obama, who is trying to put a definitive end to the torture approved by the Bush-Cheney administration.

That Obama has not been able to do so is our collective shame. Worse still, the president has apparently concluded that he lacks the support to deter future abominations of this sort by launching a proper investigation and holding to account those responsible.

Something evil has seeped into the soul of our nation. Those many years when we looked the other way, choosing to ignore the abuse of detainees in U.S. custody, eroded our morality.

Americans who claim to believe in human dignity and the law do not seem scandalized by this inhumane and illegal activity. Many people of faith appear willing to tolerat Read Full Story

Spokane-area residents see another side of Iran ("Government Bad. People Good")

“They didn’t know what to make of us,” said Pam Deutschman.

But despite their surprise or shock to meet Americans visiting their country, many of the Iranians welcomed them with open arms.

“They knew how hard it was and how unusual it was for Americans to be there,” said Jon Snyder. “They were deeply impressed and it reinforced their pride in their country.”

Throughout their travels to Tehran, Isfehan, Shiraz and other cities, people stopped to talk.

“What do you think of our country?” they would ask. On a few occasions, some people told them in English: “Government, bad. People, good.”     ( "Hmm, apparently Ernie's been to Iran!" Dianne said! So I thought I'd share that little tidbit with you guys!

Earliest Grain Storage

That's as much as a thousand years before people in the Middle East domesticated grain, the research team led by anthropologist Ian Kuijt of the University of Notre Dame said. Remains of wild barley were found in the structure, indicating that the grain was collected and saved even though formal cultivation had not yet developed. The granary was between two other structures used for grain processing and residences, discovered in excavations at Dhra', near the Dead Sea. The granary was round with walls of stone and mud. The researchers said it had a raised floor for air circulation and protection from rodents.  Read Full Story

The maximum size vehicle weighs 45 tonnes gross, and carries 175 passengers, three and two abreast. Minimum headway at 500 km/h is 20 seconds, which permits a maximum single vehicle operation capacity of 25,000 seats/hour in each direction, as compared to about 10,000 for light rail and about 3,000 for a highway lane. With headways of 60 seconds in keeping with current state-of-the-art automatic controllers, three coupled intercity vehicles would be used to achieve the 25,000 seats/hour intercity capacity.  Read Full Story

Obama hits back at insurance companies for opposing public option. It took a few months, but tensions between the Obama administration and private health insurers seem to be coming to a head.
